A friend asked me about this diet, apparently its a very low calorie (900kcals) per day diet and they inject B6 and B12 directly into your fat cells. I can only imagine this is to speed up beta oxidization but I was wondering if anyone has heard more about it or knows or some websites, thanks

Doesn't B12 increase appetite? I can't imagine eating only 900 cals using that.

If I were on a diet where I could only eat 900 cals a day I would be able to stick to it for about 10 hours.

1) dangerous

2) extremely catabolic

3) "Class Action Lawsuit" has been filed on this clinic for giving B12 injections of 3000-4000

I was working at a GNC the summer he was really big and I have heard too many horror stories...

oh sure...people lose weight

but bone mass is weight and ladies especially can lose 5-10lbs of bone easily

men lose lots of muscle

and they tell you not to exercise while following this plan
